I  got an Adobe ID,downloaded Adobe Acrobat and sent my PDF to Acrobat to "read "A book.

I have a  Samsung Galaxy J7. I have bad eyes.  I  tried to enable text to speech, EVERY way I could think of, but I can't seem to figure it out. Can someone please help? Thank you

Hi Jackp,

"Text to speech" or Read out loud function is available in Acrobat Reader desktop version. However, this functionality is unavailable in Acrobat Reader mobile application.

Acrobat Reader for Android and iOS does not provide an In-App Text-to-Speech feature ("Read Out Loud") to read a PDF document.  There are no buttons or menus to start, pause, or stop reading the contents of a PDF document within the Acrobat Reader app.

Hope this answers your query.

I wonder why its called Adobe Reader if it cannot read a text. I strongly believe a text-to-speech engine is a must for the app to be usefull. Why such an engine is present in the desktop version and not in the mobile app is really strange. There are so.many visually impaired users that really need this badly. Also, its not like I will take my desktop to my sofa and have it read a book. If anything, I will bring my mobile device.  Also, I really do not understand why Adobe reader for IOS has a feature to look up definitions of a word and the Android version does not. Before Adobe brings out new features, they should play it fair and make sure existing features are equally available across plattforms.

FYI: Adobe Acrobat App for Android appears 2nd in the Google Play store when searching for 'voice reader for android'

Perhaps Adobe should check its SEO settings so as not to give false hope. For an established product such as Adobe to be missing out one a vital 'accessibility' aspect it really has fallen short on this occasion. Wake us up when you decide to upgrade this feature. We'll be off using your competitors in the mean time.
